Private Residence, United States

This warm, modern lake home designed by Charles R. Stinson Architects is a living sculpture situated on a beautiful, wooded lot. Strong, horizontal roof forms of wood and bronze appear to float as they reach across the maple-treed site. Living areas, by CRS Interiors, open toward the lake with floor to ceiling glass onto broadly soaring decks. Beautifully crafted vertical forms of limestone anchor the home lightly, still allowing the total composition to soar.

It was the homeowners’ lifetime dream to build a warm and modern home that would blend into the Colorado Mountains. The home is in Mountain Star, one of Colorado’s most environmentally designed communities, directly adjacent to the White River National Forest.

The elegant simplicity of folding white stucco forms frames the views, creates privacy, and gives an expressive quality to this urban retreat. Designed by Charles for his sister, this family oasis, built by the architect’s son, is truly a ‘family’ project. Not only did they realize this work together, but also the goal of the project was to create a unique, comfortable home for the two empty nesters to have a place where family and friends can gather comfortably and be a positive example for the world by being ‘green’ and self-sustaining.


Beach Villa, Costa Rica

Charles R. Stinson Architects was selected among a handful of international architects to design homes for the exclusive Peninsula Papagayo Resort Community. Stinson and his team’s emphasis on creating architectural compositions in harmony with nature was seen as a natural fit for the Costa Rican landscape.

After deciding to move from Asia to the United States, this family sought a new home that would still match their lifestyle and accommodate their extensive collection of Asian art and furniture. One of the homeowners had grown up in a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which also influenced their taste in architecture.
